We already have all the conditions we need for our own happiness.

We all experience moments when we feel lonely, sad, empty, frustrated, or afraid. We fill up our feelings with a movie or a sandwich. We buy things to suppress our pain, despair, anger, and depression. We find a way to consume, in the hopes that it will obliterate the feelings. Even if a TV show isn’t interesting, we still watch it. We think anything is better than experiencing the malaise, the ill-being in us.

We have lost sight of the reality that we already have all the conditions we need for our own happiness.

~ Thích Nhất Hạnh
